Yauncy Wayne White Sr.

Yauncy Wayne White Sr., 49, passed away peacefully at his home with the love of his life, best friend and soul mate Amanda Strate by his side Monday, March 4, 2024.

After being diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer October 13, 2023, Yauncy had a strong will to live and heroically and bravely tried everything to win the battle, he fought until the very end.

Yauncy was born September 17, 1974 in Vancouver, Washington; the son of Gary White and Carol Gard White.

He was a proud father of three children that he loved so very much.

He obtained his high school diploma and attended Baker Community College in Baker City, Oregon. There he opened and owned Shifty Skateboards and Tattoos; he was an outstanding entrepreneur for kids of all ages to get into skateboarding. Something Yauncy had a life-long passion for.

Almost 11 years ago he moved to Rock Springs, Wyoming where he worked at Skin City Ink & Steel as a tattoo artist and piercer for a few years prior o opening Euphoric Tattoo Parlour & Skate with Amanda in 2016. As an owner, tattoo artist and piercer, he also carried through his love for skateboarding, stocking the shop for kids to be inspired to skate.

Yauncy was such a happy, kind, loving, caring, giving, inspiring and wonderful human. There truly aren't enough words to describe his beautiful, sparkling and colorful soul; gone too soon.

He loved skateboarding, road trips, going to the ocean, working on his saltwater aquariums, tattooing, riding his motorcycle, being with friends... but most of all he loved spending time with his family. Yauncy's family was everything to him.

He was so loved and will be deeply missed by so many.

Survivors include, his companion, Amanda Strate of Rock Springs, Wyoming; father, Gary White of Baker City, Oregon; two sons, Yauncy White Jr. of Vancouver, Washington; Brody White of St. Peter's, Missouri; one daughter, Alexandria White and companion Jeremy Sterkenburg of Boise, Idaho; one sister, Kim Hughes and husband Tom of Baker City; one aunt, many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
